Preview one of the future exhibits at the Powerhouse Science Center: Swim for Your Life! This interactive exhibit invites you to be a salmon—swimming in the river and avoiding all the obstacles that await an unwary fish. Will you be caught by a fisherman? Eaten by a bear? Swooped up by an eagle? Swim, little salmon, swim! Can you make it to the top of the fish ladder?
